Reports: FTC may try to block Facebook from integrating apps

Several news reports said federal regulators are considering antitrust action to prevent Facebook from weaving together its messaging apps

Both the FTC and Facebook declined to comment on the reports.

Facebook has been planning to integrate the apps since early 2019. Federal regulators are concerned that Facebook's plan could make it hard to break up the company should the FTC find that necessary. The news was first published by The Wall Street Journal.
